Looks really good, but i dont easily download games for free anymore.

Anyone has imps on this? It does look really solid, and funny.

Yeah, it's the worst kind of IAP in that you are encouraged to pay premium currency to revive your 3 characters. You have the option to not revive but you start back at the beginning. It would be a cool game if it wasn't freemium.

Dying is part of the game. It's a sort of Rogue-Like, and you get to use the MacGuffins you collected to unlock better gear.

To be fair, you can definitely play this game without spending real cash money. You can even upgrade your characters without premium currency. But I'd much rather pay an upfront cost for this game than mess with IAP.

Recap, healing potions cost crystals (premium currency) and so does reviving characters. At any point you can switch between characters which is cool. If all 3 characters die, you go back to the beginning and start over, keeping whatever upgrades and coins you've obtained. IAP for Coin Doubler is $4.99 which removes ads as well. IAP for crystals and coins which is spent on upgrades.

It's just not my cup of tea.

Thanks for the feedback ScotDamn, you've helped us understand that the fact that the game revolves around completing many expeditions is not clear enough to the players.

We are already working on improvements to make this clearer, and make the overall experience more enjoyable.

The game crashes right at the startup for me on my iPad Air, right after logging into GC. Is it something to do with my 495 friends?

I will give it a try.

@LordGek

I thought that Bug was only when you had above the 500 Friends on GC

500 is no longer the cut off point?
